Ex-England coach rumbled as one to order Kane to take corners

Manchester United legend Gary Neville has been rumbled as the England coach who had Harry Kane take the corners at the Euros.

The Daily Star says it was the former England assistant coach who decided Kane would be the best option to take them in France.

Neville felt the dip and swerve that Kane could impart on the ball would make him the best man for the job.

The Tottenham star took them against Russia in the group opener to little effect - before being removed from the duty after just one game.

Manchester United star Wayne Rooney was handed the responsibility for the rest of the ill-fated tournament.

England's plan to use Kane on corners at Euro 2016 was slammed by fans and pundits.
